Default Car with no driver ..WAT NEXT ???

.. I turned on the TV after getting home a while back and by mistake landed on AAJ TAK and guess what I read as BREAKING NEWS -- CAR WITHOUT DRIVER on the ROADS of Delhi !!!

A black Indica was spotted and captured on a mobile video camera by a call centre executive early this morning which was moving on the roads with a passenger reading a newspaper on the front passenger seat but there was no one behind the steering wheel ...... AMAZING !!!

I wonder what this is all about .... Any ideas ?????

Cheers

is it me or does anybody else think R/C. like TopGear. but instead of putting the motor for the steering on the steering itself, they have cut the steering colomn and put the motor there and the steering has no mechanical connection. i am just surprised that the guy in the passenger seat is just reading a paper like nothing is wrong.

MUHAHAHAHA!!!!!

Looks like India is bcoming the global hub for miracles.

If you guys noticed, the steering wasn't moving a bit. Chances are, they're using a dummy steering and the real controls are at the back.

And how dumb do you have to be to shoot such a long vid, stop at the lights and still not get out and inspect the car. For all you know, the guy who shot it, must have had a hand in this.

i think they had inspected the vehicle but have not found any controls in the fron may be at the back there is something, but then nobody is in the rear seat too. i think this is some cheap publicity stunt.
